Kids’ Club Review by Genevye: Stage fright on a summer night

Stage fright on a summer nightStage fright on a summer night, by Mary Pope Osborne

This book was a exciting book because Jack and Annie get to go to England , and they meet William Shakespeare! One of the greatest authors!! They also see Queen Elizabeth !! When I was reading on the page of Queen Elizabeth it said that she wore a red wig and she had black teeth! She got black teeth because she ate too much sugar . I learned about at school that if you eat too much sugar you will die . So be careful of making choices of eating too much sugar . Overall , I liked this adventure in the Magic Tree House Series and I am definitely continuing the series till im finished all of the series .

Kids’ Club Review by Petra: Small and tall tales of extinct animals

Small and tall tales of extinct animalsSmall and tall tales of extinct animals, by Hélène Rajcak

I thought it was a really interesting book but a bit sad reading about all animals that are now extinct. But on the whole it was a good book. The pictures were really good and very fun to look at, and you were easily able to imagine what the real animal would have looked like. It had lots of facts and you could use it to help you write a whole project.

HunterHunter, by Joy Cowley

This book is about two people 200 years apart both in a dangerous situations. One is a girl whose plane has crashed called Jordan and the other is a maori slave called Hunter. Will Jordan and Hunter survive? This is an exhilarating novel so therefore I rate it 5 stars. I think children 9+ should read this book.

Kids’ Club Review by Luke: Peace Warriors

Peace Warriors, by Raymond Huber

This book is about people from the NZ and also the world who have stood up for what they believe in in a non-violent way. For example, a village in France saved thousands of Jews from being killed during WWII. This is an inspiring book about real people. It would be a great resource for my school.

Peace Warriors, by Raymond Huber

A book about real people who do not want to fight with violence they want to fight with peace and save lives. I liked this book because it was about brave people and some of them were women. The stories were interesting. I think children 10+ would enjoy this book as well as teachers.

Kids’ Club Review by Genevye: Ghost town at sundown

Ghost town at sundownGhost town at sundown, by Mary Pope Osborne

This book was not terrifying at all actually , my big sister always says to me don’t judge the book by it’s cover. My favorite characters were Slim because he looked slim and his name was Slim That was so funny It was so funny that Slim called Annie Smiley and Slim called Jack Shorty . It was a bit sad because Lonesome Luke (a ghost) Slim said that Lonesome Luke had a gal which I think means girlfriend went back to east because she couldn’t take the Wlid West so she went back to east. It was a bit sad for that part . So Lonesome Luke always went to a hotel and played Red River Valley over and over again. This book was funny and sad at the same time . I really enjoyed it.
